15 books! I read 15 books in October and it was amazing. Now, 8 of them were rereads, but I’m counting them on my list because it’s been over a year since I’ve read any of them (for some, its been several years) and it wasn’t a quick reread. Each one took over a day to finish. I don’t usually count rereads because I read them in a couple of hours, but these I feel obligated to include.
Read on for more details. Don’t worry, I’ll keep the details brief since there are quite a few books to get through (also I’m tired).

1. The Power by Jennifer L. Armentrout|| 3.5/5 Stars
I put this series down for a couple of years, but since it was all published, I decided to pick it up again! It wasn’t breathtaking and fantastic, but it was fun. I still prefer the original series, The Covenant Saga, much much more than this spin-off.
2. The Struggle by Jennifer L. Armentrout|| 3/5 Stars
3. The Prophecy by Jennifer L. Armentrout|| 3.5/5 Stars
4. The Lost Sisters by Holly Black|| 5/5 Stars
I loved this novella! Taryn was a character I didn’t really care for in The Cruel Prince, but this made me appreciate her a lot more. Also, it got me so hyped for The Wicked King. I’m so glad I had an ARC to dive into.
5. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black|| 5/5 Stars
Before I started The Wicked King ARC, I wanted to read the final copy of The Cruel Prince. I loved the ARC when I read it last year, and to no one’s surprise I loved the finished edition. This book is absolutely amazing.
6. The Wicked King ARC by Holly Black|| 5/5 Stars
Oh. My. God. This was everything I could have wanted and more in a sequel. I’ll be posting a full review closer to the release date (1/8/2019), but I have to say– damn. That book. That ending. I’m dead.
7. The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky by Mackenzi Lee|| 5/5 Stars
This was such a cute read! I’m so glad I got to see these adorable disasters again.
8. Warrior of the Wild ARC by Tricia Levenseller|| 4.5/5 Stars
Tricia Levenseller is now one of my favorite authors. She always writes such fun, entertaining books! I’ll be posting a review closer to this book’s release (2/26/2019), but I can’t wait for more people to read it!
9. The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas|| 5/5 Stars
To prepare for Kingdom of Ash, I decided to do my first major reread of the Throne of Glass series. While it didn’t quite hold up like I expected it to (there are definitely a lot of issues with this series), I still love it and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I don’t know. I have more thoughts on this series and the controversies around it. Maybe I’ll make a whole post about it.
